COMMITTED TO MAXIMIZING QUALITY OF LIFE

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY (OT)

If one’s quality of life has been negatively impacted due to a physical, cognitive, psychological, or emotional injury, (or combination), our interdisciplinary health team headed by our occupational therapy group can help.  We treat clients who have been impacted through concussion, traumatic brain injury, mental health issues, or catastrophic injury.

 

Despite the common misconception, Occupational Therapy is not limited to workplace injuries. In fact, “occupation” means any activity in which one participates on any given day.  For example, getting dressed, bathing, self care are all examples of “occupation”. Hobbies, sports, and social engagement are all examples of “occupation”. Working, housework, and school are all examples of “occupation”.

 

All of our OTs are Members in Good Standing with the College of Occupational Therapists of BC and hold Master’s level certification (or equivalent).  Continuing education regulations ensure our OTs stay current with the latest evidence-based practices and techniques.

 

Here are some areas of practice in which we help clients:

  • Brain Injury
  • Concussion
  • Catastrophic Injury
  • Mental Health
  • Physical Injury
  • Chronic Pain
  • Home Assessments & Modifications
  • Equipment Fitting & Modifications

RAINCOAST COMMUNITY REHABILITATION

Since 1983, Raincoast has provided community rehabilitation services to injured British Columbians. We were the first to apply this community-based model to survivors of traumatic brain injury in BC.  Raincoast has since evolved to offer a broader range of services that better serves our clients’ individual needs.

 

Our goal is to foster a holistic and collaborative professional environment; one where evidence-based practice is reinforced by a robust interdisciplinary health team compromising occupational therapists, kinesiologists, psychologists, and rehabilitation workers.  While clients’ needs vary, our goal always remains the same:  To restore to the maximum extent possible one’s independence, confidence, and community reintegration.

LITIGATION SUPPORT SERVICES

Case Management, Expert Reports,
Expert Testimony

Raincoast has been working with survivors of brain injury for over 30 years.  This experience enables us to provide unparalleled case management and litigation support required by legal advocates.

 

We understand that expert reports are complicated and can be overly cryptic.  Our reports and testimony are thorough, comprehensive, and yet, presented in plain language.  This means that our clients can rely on our experts to educate the judge (or jury) about the meaning of the language and the specific needs of their client.
